CaJohns Bourbon Infused Chipotle Hot Sauce

July 31, 2018

   CaJohns Bourbon Infused Chipotle Hot Sauce is a chipotle sauce like no other. It’s got more of a kick than most other products of this type because of the added red habaneros. It’s got an even richer, deeper smokiness due to the added natural applewood smoke flavouring and is also quite smooth with an added touch of sweet bourbon to complete the flavour profile. This is another top-quality product made by CaJohns Fiery Food co. that I highly recommend to anyone into BBQ sauces with a kick, bourbon-based, or chipotle sauces.  I’ve also reviewed a few other products by CaJohns in the past. Notably Fatalii Fire, Elixir of Trinidad 7-Pot, Fire Cock Asian Hot Sauce, and Serrano Lime! Give them a read if you’d like!

   The ingredients in this sauce complement each other in the best way possible. The red habanero, with its tantalizing heat and citrusy flavour, and chipotle chiles, with their smoky fruitiness, bring all the heat to this sauce. The tomato paste and brown sugar give the sauce the perfect level of sweetness in relation to the heat, smokiness, and overall depth of flavour. The apple cider vinegar is used in this sauce as a great substitute for regular vinegar because not only is it better for your health, but it also adds a nice subtle tang that complements the other flavours present. The Jim Beam Black Label Bourbon with its full-bodied flavour, adds subtle yet rich notes of caramel and oak. This flavour combined with the smoky-sweetness that this sauce provides is a match made in heaven! The corn starch gives it that smooth consistency while the natural applewood smoke flavouring helps to elevate the smokiness of the chipotles.

   In terms of heat I would give this sauce a 3 out of 10. Even with the added habaneros, this sauce has a nice bold sweetness that cuts the heat a bit. I would still say that this is a notch hotter than other chipotle sauces on the market but would still recommend it to those just getting into hot sauce, those who like a good smoky chipotle flavour, or any hardcore chile head like myself! You will not be disappointed by the flavours and mild-medium kick this product has to offer!

   This sauce can be enjoyed in many ways. It adds a sweet kick and a whole lot of flavour wherever you put it. I love incorporating it in Mexican, Caribbean, or Southwestern dishes. It’s perfect on roasted chicken, sautéed shrimp, barbecued fish, burritos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and more. Enjoy it in quesadillas, sandwiches, pulled pork, and baked beans. Put it on pizza, pork chops, hot dogs, tofu, and nachos to name a few. It’s also a great sweet and spicy dip for French fries, chicken tenders, wings, meatballs and more!

As always, stay on the spicy side of life!

Marie Sharp’s Fiery Hot Habanero Hot Sauce

February 20, 2019

This hot sauce is a simple and unique carrot-based blend which reminds me of the Caribbean… especially in this very harsh Canadian winter we’ve been experiencing this season. It’s tangy, savoury, sweet, and has the perfect kick you would hope to find in a habanero-based sauce!

Burns & McCoy Exitium Hot Sauce

February 12, 2019

It’s simply delicious given that the sauce makers have perfectly balanced all the fresh flavours in the mix. Before having tried it a few years back, I had never thought that a sauce could have such a fruity flavour profile while also having a pretty good burn.

Not just a wing sauce

Amazing rounded sauce. Nice heat. Flavorful. Buy this one.

Great service and great selection

I had great service from Nick for coordinating shipping post purchase. The packaging the sauces came in was done in a very secure manner and I was extremely pleased. I didn't try the sauces as they were gifts but I just want to review on the excellent service I received.

New fav

This is my new #1. Delicious!

So addictive!

I've purchased numerous cans of these nuts. Very fresh and they taste great. Just the right amount of heat, even for those who like mildly spiced food.
